With love from the sisters of Brother McGriff:
April 12, 2021 is a day we will never forget, the day we lost our brother to gun violence. We the sisters of Anthony McGriff, decided to turn our pain into purpose. Gun violence plaques our inner city communities. Just as we lost our brother, many other families have lost their loved ones to gun violence. In honor of our brother, we want to give back to a high school senior who has lost a parent to gun violence. Proceeds from this Gala will go towards raising money to assist a deserving high school senior with their next steps after high school. Remember, it takes a village, and we are the village!!!
